I'm not much of a handgunner but I do see the need/use for a good pistol so I recently picked up a used 5906 with Crimson Trace grips. It's about the same size as an officers model 1911 and the all steel construction makes for very mild recoil.
Anyways I think I'm going to like this little gun and wondered what experiences you guys have had with them.
I would own a S&W if they stopped trying to make Glocks and went back to making a gun when they had an original design. They were solid guns. The DA was smooth. Period. No DA/SA auto was easier to shoot. I had a 3953 in the 90s and I wish I could have it back. I was on a SIG kick and traded it in on a P225 that served me well. I still miss that 3953. I eventualy traded the P225 for a G26 in '96 when they came out. Went to a G19 and on to a full size G37 these days.
I miss them metal S&W pistols. They need to ditch the Glock wannabe attitude and go back to what they are good at. Them old metal Smiths rival the quality of todays SIGs. I would even say they are better than todays SIGs. I feel its akin to Glock making alloy frame guns nothing like an original Glock and dropping the original line with no trace of them ever again.
